FuryOfFirestorm: Cythraul: I wish I could find vanilla coke regularly. I love that stuff.Vanilla Coke is the only Coke I like. Otherwise, it's Pepsi all the way.(There was a Vanilla Pepsi a while back, but now I can't find it, nor the Cherry Vanilla Pepsi Jazz. At least I'll always Vanilla Coke Zero to ease the pain)
hp6sa: I don't get it. Why wouldn't he just go to Walgreens and purchase his beloved soda there? Is it really worth the time and effort to go to Walmart to ask for a dollar (or whatever) back?
meanmutton: That is likely part of the reason you're not a rich man.
Cluckity: un4gvn666: No, I was talking about the debate over whether she was doing him a favor.That still seems exceedingly petty to me. I am not a rich man, but I have to admit I'll look down on anyone who goes to the bother of price matching debates over some soda in the first place.
arobb00: For those who didn't seem to read the article and are saying, for one, why didn't he just go to Walgreens or someplace else - great job showing your lack of reading comprehension. He stated that this (admittedly nasty) flavor is hard to find and that he has to drive to the Wal-Mart to get it. Second, the way he described the encounter with the clerk's supervisor sounded a bit hostile on the supervisor's part - where she said "I don't care what the website says...". That is called confrontational language; at that point I would have felt provoked as well - remember this is transpiring in front of other people so she is now embarrassing the customer. I am betting a lot of you would have snapped a bit too - he used more restraint than I would have by only using the word "shiat". Thirdly to the one(s) who said "he got his discount, why did he keep griping?" - because the manager stood there and gave him a horse-crap spiel about how she was basically doing him a favor blah blah. They were still being confrontational. Per company policy they were all wrong yet would not admit it. Lastly, all of you biatching about the dude instead of the personnel of that store's handling of this - you'd be first in line to go thermonuclear if the same thing played out for you./yes weirdos shop at Wal-Mart//yes vanilla diet-coke will probably kill the guy in a couple years///he was still right and the store was wrong.
Disposable Rob: Yes please: This guy seems especially douchey, even by Consumerist standards.I was just thinking that he's probably the average Consumerist submitter, but he's being much more honest about his entitled assholishness.
Sybarite: I generally find that if a store isn't doing what I wantthey promise to do in their ads the best policy is to act like total dick.
un4gvn666: No, I was talking about the debate over whether she was doing him a favor.
Cluckity: un4gvn666: I can sort of understand this, but the store is pretty blatantly violating the corporate policy. Letting the supervisor think they're doing you a favor by not violating corporate policy wouldn't be OK with me either, I think.You don't think it's kind of a petty thing to get all worked up about? A debate over how serious the word 'shiat' is with a farking Walmart employee?
Cythraul: I wish I could find vanilla coke regularly. I love that stuff.
un4gvn666: I must be missing something. I have no problem with what the guy did. The Walmart supervisor was being a complete retard.Can Fark explain to me why I should dislike this man?
Smoke14: Oh yeah that and SURGE....
Disposable Rob: I have know idea how widespread they are nation-wide, but I'm seeing these things everywhere on the east coast now. Something like 100-150 flavor combos, depending upon set-up.[farm3.static.flickr.com image 620x330]
I_Am_Weasel: I didn't even consider experimenting with Vanilla Coke in college. Did I miss something?
Smoke14: Coke needs to bring back the black cherry vanilla Coke.
I_Am_Weasel: I've never had Vanilla Coke. Though it's been a long time since I had any dark, caffeinated soda.I didn't even consider experimenting with Vanilla Coke in college. Did I miss something?
Cythraul: Diogenes: Cythraul: I wish I could find vanilla coke regularly. I love that stuff.I'd impugn your sexuality, but....you know.Are you saying liking vanilla coke is gay? I've never heard that stereotype before.
